A selection of phone lenses

For novice and amateur photographers who enjoy experimenting with smartphone cameras, how about a selection of lenses? 

From Photo Jojo, Fisheye, Telephoto, Wide Angle and Macro cell phone lenses can all be purchased separately or as a pack. Each lens is made from aluminium and can be used on Android phones, iPhones, iPads and BlackBerrys. In order to attack a lens to your gadget, you use an adhesive removable metal ring on the back of the mobile device, and then the lens magnetically attaches itself. For use with the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5, two specialist rings are included so the flash and microphone are not blocked.

For a complete kit, expect to pay $49.

The Optrix iPhone Adventure Suit

For owners of the iPhone 5 who like to travel and take advantage of their camera, the Optrix iPhone Adventure Suit could be a suitable gift.

Two other elements make this case an all-round cool accessory; two industrial strength adhesive rail mounts mean you can connect your iPhone to external objects such as helmets, and an optional sucker means you can attach it to almost any surface with a pressure rating of 120 pounds per square inch.

The adventure suit costs $130, or $150 with the additional sucker accessory.
